No matter where it is in the polls, St. Cloud State (7-2, 2-2 National Collegiate Hockey Conference) is not an easy team to get past.

"They're not No. 1 or 2 by default," Colorado College coach Mike Haviland said.

Denver lost the top Division 1 ranking for the first time this season after being swept by Western Michigan two weeks ago, with St. Cloud State taking over ahead of a matchup with the Pioneers. Denver swept the Huskies, outscoring them 9-3, and took the top spot back.

"I'm sure they're not happy with what went on up there, but we have to worry about ourselves," Haviland said. "We've got to make sure we're ready to play."

The Tigers (7-5, 3-3 NCHC) travel to face the Huskies this weekend. CC is coming off a split with Omaha, when forward Mason Bergh paced the team with five points (one goal, four assists) and goaltender Alex Leclerc made 41 saves in a shutout Saturday.

The wins were few for Colorado College the past two seasons, but the team managed a split in each of the trips it took to St. Cloud. And the Tigers have another bounce-back effort fresh in their memories.

“From the cage out, I thought we played a solid 60-minute game (Saturday),” Haviland said.
